I had Striped my six drives in Raid 0 format on my Intel X79 chipset from Gigabyte. My motherboard was burnt and I am unable to get the same motherboard now. My data on the Raid 0 is critical. I have now planned to get an AMD Ryzen 9 CPU and new motherboard with onboard Raid 0. Will I be able to read my Raid and get my data. If not is there a way to get it back by running testdisk.
I have run this 6 drive Raid 0 configuration for last 8 years on two different systems without any issues. There were issues about drives going offline and raid not showing but that was simple to get back through testdisk. No issues there as they were all Intel motherboards.
The problem now is different. Now i have switched to an AMD CPU and matching motherboard. My question is whether my existing RAID be recognised on this motherboard. Will testdisk be of any use this time. Please help of anyone has had any experience of switching motherboards from Intel to AMD

Your Intel Raid cannot be read by an AMD raid controller. The easiest solution is to put it back into the Intel & backup all the data to an external drive, move the 6 drives to the AMD, create & format the array (which wipes all existing data), and then load the data back in from the external drive.
Otherwise your looking at using something like ReclaimMe or MDADM (linux) to run the raid virtually which will allow you to export the data to another (external/backup) drive.
If testdisk was able to recover dfata from a failed raid0 array then you aren't runing raid0. Raid10 perhaps or raid5.
